How to connect Power BI to ODBC data source and access data in 3 steps

  • Install the driver and configure an ODBC data source. Start Power BI and choose Get Data > Other > ODBC.
  • Choose the DSN that you configured for the ODBC Driver and enter your credentials in the next step.
  • Now Power BI database connection is established: you can load a table for business intelligence reporting.

Devart drivers provide Direct access to your databases and clouds from Power BI, which eliminates the use of database client libraries, simplifies the deployment process, and extends your application capabilities.
